What Students Say…

Karyn’s Mastermind Group Facilitator Training was truly superb. She has the unusual ability to present rich detail which will be invaluable to me in leading Mastermind groups, while not overwhelming us with details, and keeping the big picture clear and focused. The most effective teleseminar I have ever taken!

Setting Yearly Goals: Is Your Group Asking You To Grow?

It’s that time of year again…time to start thinking about your goals for next year. Setting yearly goals significantly increases the likelihood of success. But setting the bar too low is a recipe for self-sabotage.

We know in the study of motivation that there is a “growing edge” where people are most likely to accomplish their goals and tasks, and move forward on their dreams. The growing edge is the place in your mind that says two things that are true: that the task is challenging AND the task is do-able; it’s the place of the possibility of the most growth.

Finding the place where the most growth can take place is an important task, even if it’s the most painful place, because it is often the most fertile place as well.

We often resist changes in our life. It is inevitable that resistance and fear will happen. Because this is a holistic model, your growing edge will naturally bring up your fears and your resistance to change. Keep your focus on the vision of possibility while respecting the fears that come up. Making mistakes and taking risks is welcome because it releases creativity and imagination.

When looking for your growing edge, always start with the “truth” of where you really are now. Do not start with your pathology (what is preventing you from moving forward). Instead, always start with your vision.

Many people have two dreams, two visions: the “big dream” for the distant future (also called the “meta-vision” or all-encompassing dream of how we’d like things in the future), and a vision “in the now” of what can be accomplished today or this week or this month. It’s important to keep both dreams in your mind simultaneously when doing this work, because that is where your passion and energy resides.

Remember, no growing edge is better or worse than another. Each growing edge is unique and people rarely have the exact same growing edge, even if they’re dealing with the same issue.

When you are part of a mastermind group, your mastermind partners should be aware of your growing edge and should hold your feet to the fire. When making plans for the next 12 months of your personal and professional life, make sure that your plans are “challenging but do-able.” And ask your mastermind partners to always, always ask you: Are you on the growing edge?

Accountability plays a key role here. Your group may encourage you to set big goals, but are they also making sure you implement your plans and look for failure points? It’s easy (and fun) for a group to come up with wonderful goals for each member, and harder for each member to achieve those goals without the group brainstorming and support. Make sure you group is encouraging you to grow and make sure that you’re all helping each other by making those goals come true.

What Are You Most Proud Of?

Here’s an amazing exercise for starting the New Year right. No — it’s NOT about writing New Year’s resolutions! It’s not about looking forward, but instead looking backwards.

What’s the point of looking backwards when a new year is on the horizon? Because what has happened, what you’ve accomplished is tangible proof of your effectiveness, creativity, determination, and success.

As the year draws to a close, it’s nice to look back and remind yourself what you’re most proud of accomplishing over the past 12 months.


  • Which projects did you complete?
  • Which skills and attitudes did you display?
  • Which relationships did you strengthen (and which did you get rid of)?
  • How much money did you make (and how much did you keep)?
  • What healthy habits did you embrace?
  • What did you do to alleviate stress?
  • What have you learned? What have you mastered?
  • Which events did you attend that brought results?
  • Which life and business development techniques worked for you?
  • What are you most proud of, from 2014?

Take time to write a complete list for the past year. You’ll be amazed at what you’ve accomplished and gain confidence that you can accomplish what you need to for 2015!

Here’s a worksheet (PDF) to help you with this exercise.
